    I cant wait till this coming Friday! My new Nesco is coming!

    any one else have one of these? I mainly got it to use as a second oven , but I can see the use for it as a slow cooker to.
    I got it at QVC ( my first purchase from them )

    Is it the "Nesco 12qt. Nonstick Convection Roaster Oven w/Roasting Rack" Item Number K1762?

    I've not used a convection oven before - have you? What are the benefits, etc?

    Looking at the manual for it, it says the slow cooking in it doesn't use the convection process but keeps it at a slow, low simmer.

    I havent the benefit is that it can brown , it also speeds up the cooking process. The application Im using it in is for a second oven. Currently I have a 18 QT GE roaster its great but it doesnt brown . The convection is a fan that you can turn on or off depending on what your doing.

    I belong to a Nesco Yahoo group they do everything in theirs , and allot of them use it as a slow cooker.

    It came today! Its really nice looking .. DH is smoking it out ( a pre use requirement ) This is going to be great for the usual reasons ( roasting baking etc ) but its really going to be great for larger slow cooking needs .. you just dont turn the fan on and set it to the slow cooker mode on the dial.

    That is so neat! Lucky you! I have the regular 18 qt. electric Nesco Roaster Oven which I usually bake my turkeys in, but it is always a PITB to have to move it over to the regular oven just to brown it and that is what I always do.
    I'll be interested to see how you like this "convection" deal.

    I use my 18 qt for all kinds of things. It sure came in handy once during an ice storm when we lost power for 3 days. That doesn't happen around here very often. But I baked biscuits in it and other than the fact that they didn't brown very well, they tasted great!

    The convection was great the chicken I made came out perfect and brown like I had wished for I have a GE 18 Qt and I really liked it except the Turkey came out pale. Thats when I decided to look for something like the Nesco.

    I called Nesco and they are not producing more 18QTs with the air lid untill later in the year. Guess I will have to wait to get a big one , till then I am really pleased with the 12 Qt.

    I also have the 18 qt. Nesco and I love it for baking Turkeys, it does the best job! BUT.....I also love, love, love my 4 qt. (I have 2 of these) I use this all the time, I make all my beef (less tender roasts, and pork butt roasts in it, I would be lost without my Nesco's. I got all of my Nesco's on QVC also, and the 4 qt is only like $25.00.
